Enough Room for Friends, Family, or Both

Most of us are happy enough to drive around solo in our subcompact SUVs, commuting to and from work while listening to whatever we like without argument. Some of us need more seats for taking kids to school or to go camping with friends. Some of us need every seat in the family minivan for soccer games. And then there are those who need even more space than any minivan or 3-row SUV can offer.

For those few, it’s time for a full-size van. These can seat as few as eight and as many as 15, with 12 being the most common configuration. Like pickup trucks, these vans are endlessly configurable, with regular and long wheelbases, short and high roofs, and long lists of options, from technology packages to towing capabilities. And that’s not even getting into the aftermarket upfitters who specialize in creating vans particular to a niche, like tourism or camping.

The vans in this slideshow all seat 10 or more passengers and can be configured from the manufacturer – no upfitter required. Given the many variations that are possible, manufacturers generally give only the total amount of cargo space behind the front seats as if there were no seats in the back. So that’s what we’ll use to compare size, though of course with seats in place there will be less room for actual cargo.

The prices listed are for the most basic version that seats at least 10 people. Each of the vans has different trim levels, packages, and options available that allow you to customize everything for your needs and your budget. There aren’t all that many models on the market, but there many ways to make these models work when a seven-seater just won’t do.
